One of the very first objective of this blog before it had a life of its own was for me to write reviews about books that I’ve read. However, as you all know, the blog became a blog about Feng Shui, Taoism, and Buddhism.
However, today I would like to write a very short review thus going back to the basic origin of this blog but at the same time staying true to this blog’s ‘life’.
Robin Sharma’s book “The Monk Who Sold His Ferrari” was first published 15 years ago, but I really haven’t read it until recently. Sharma’s approach is really to write it as a novel, but one may call it a self – help book, only it is not the no – nonsense, impossible to follow, and incredible kind of self – help book. It is a self – help book that is very practical and Zen. In fact, a lot of the things that it stated in the book are basic Zen meditation techniques.
What is even more interesting, Sharma has addressed all the possible questions and excuses people make, and yet the book remains to be a light read. It is one of the best books I’ve ever read for a long time.
